Developed specifically for exterior installation, s_enn® features thin, lightweight stainless steel retractable panels that roll-up like a standard fabric roller shade. When the sun is at an angle of 20 degrees or higher, the placement of the rods offers a nice view-through, while blocking direct light. It has been tested in a wind tunnel at speeds of up to 80 mph (126 kph) with no damage making the s_enn® perfect for the exterior of high-rise buildings.
